Kakadu National Park

Kakadu National Park is the largest national park in Australia and most importantly for us – it’s utterly different from all other parks we have seen so far.

Kakadu National Park je australsky nejvetsi narodni park a co je pro nas spise dulezitejsi – je naprosto odlisny od vsech parku, ktere sme doposud videli.




Kakadu is different from the rest of Oz. People come here with hopes of seeing some huge rocks, crocodiles, gorges and in return they get wetlands, heaps of mosquitoes & flies and abundance of incredible birdlife. And that’s why Kakadu has such a divided reputation – it’s just different and you have to stay there as long as you can to truly appreciate what it has to offer.

It took us more than week to actually start liking Kakadu and that’s something! We’re super excited almost all the time but for this particular occasion it was a matter of patience and open mind.

So the land is flat, there are some billabongs, aboriginal arts and those annoying loud birds are everywhere 🙂 So how come we liked it? There is something to it that just calms your mind and sets you in a peaceful place. Wandering around a billabong and watching pelicans and ducks just doesn’t sound so adventurous as climbing a mountain or swimming in a gorge pool.
Oh well, just look at the photos and you will understand 🙂

Kakadu is all about sunrise and sunset – that’s when all the birds come to life and that’s when there’s the most amazing light. All of sudden everything looks magical and you are in a fantasy land.

So if you are considering Kakadu – do it properly and take it slow otherwise you’ll be leaving frustrated from the flies/mozzies and not getting the whole picture, okay ? 🙂

Kakadu je proste a jednoduse prilis odlisny od zbytku Australie. Lide odsud velmi casto odjizdi zklamani, protoze nevideli nejake masivni skaly, gorges a nebo ty nechvalne vyhlasene slanovodni krokodyly. Kakadu nabizi tzv. wetlands coz jsou masivni rovne plane, ktere jsou neco mezi bazinou, mokrinou a blatami. A na techto wetlands zije uzasna banda zvirat z cehoz vetsinu predstavuji ptaci.

Ten cerny pruh je “zorana” zeme od buffalo a divokych prasat – dost velky problem pro puvodni zvirata

Je nutne zustat v Kakadu co nejdele aby clovek zacal teprve ocenovat a zvykat si na tyto zcela odlisne prirodni divy. Nam trvalo zhruba tyden nez sme si toto misto zamilovali a to je co rict! Vetsinou sme mega nadseni z temer kazdeho mista a Kakadu nam pod kuzi zalezlo az po delsi dobe.

Takze temer cele Kakadu je placka, je tu par vysychajicich jezirek, docela dost zachovalych kreseb od puvodni populace a uplne vsude jsou ty “hlasiti a otravni” ptaci 🙂 Tak proc se nam to vubec libilo? Treba protoze ty ptaci nejsou vubec otravni a je to neskutecna prca je sledovat a nebo I poslouchat! Staci tak 100 bilych corella papousku a uchechtate se, protoze oni jsou vyhlaseni komedianti. Navic vetsina Kakadu je jak vystrizena z pohadky a pusobi mirumilovne a uklidni dusi I telo 🙂 Obejit jezirko (v australstine Billabong) pri zapadu slunce mozna pro nekoho nezni tak dobrodruzne jako zhorat dolu (ano, takhle sme krasne zkomolili nas rodny jazyk), ale ma to hodne do sebe.

Kakadu je hlavne o vychodu a zapadu (uz sem malem psal “zachodu”) slunce – to jsou ty chvile kdy mezi stormy prosvita to uzasny svetlo a clovek si pripada jak v pohadce. Vetsina ptaci populace se I probouzi k zivotu (samozrejme I krokousove 🙂 ) a diky vsemoznym vodnim hladinam je pozitek sledovat odraz slunce ze vsech moznych uhlu.

01

Takze pokud zvazujete Kakadu tak ho fakt dejte poradne. Nema cenu ho projizdet behem par dnu, protoze to vas akorat budou stvat hmyzaci a nedostanete se to spravne klidne nalady abyste to cele ocenili, oukej ? 🙂
